3 stars It is often the case with a band you're unsure of to begin your exploration with a live album; this was the case many years ago with Tangerine Dream and I - the album I chose? Logos.

From the initial electronic meltdown which announces the beginning of 'Logos' itself, to the finale 45 minutes later, I was hooked; Messrs Froese, Franke & Schmoelling don't put a foot wrong - every sequence, every crescendo, every pop and bleep in it's place, and all recorded with crystal clarity (which is not always the case with TD live albums,as a cursory listen to 'Encore' will prove).

The music itself moves between lush soundscapes, almost poppy beats, and very dark, brooding, almost scary passages(Logos was, in fact, used very effectively as the soundtrack for cult horror movie 'The Keep').

My problem with this album, after hearing many others from TD, is this is almost too clinical - overall the atmosphere of the album is very cold - despite the enthusiastic audience - almost Tangerine Dream by numbers; this is not a bad album, far from it, but for live albums, I would start with Ricochet, Encore (poor sound quality but musically superior), or Poland.
